This is a beautiful house with a priceless view of the beach and ocean! The house has been well maintained and provided us a wonderful vacation! The dune deck and stairs looked brand new and provided a short walk to the beach over the wonderfully vegetated dune. Sunrise can be viewed from the 2nd and 3rd floor and is best seen from the 3rd floor deck or ships watch!
The main floor open living area is large and spacious with an open floor plan. ... and again,.. that view!!!! The house was very clean upon our arrival and the interior decor is simple and uncluttered. The online photos appear to be up to date and current.
The pool and hot tub area, while open, have a very private feel as the house on one side has a privacy area built around their pool and the house on the other side is smaller and set further back from the dune and can't be seen when inside the pool. The pool and hot tub were both clean, refreshing and used daily!
I have a few recommendations for improvement: The master king bedroom bed is VERY squeaky making it very noisy for the occupants in the room and the occupants in the queen room below the master King. The sliding glass door on the ground floor going out to the pool is VERY difficult to open and then lock. The couches while clean, felt frumpy. The kitchen is on the small side, but provided all needed amenities - toaster, toaster oven, microwave, coffee pot, dishwasher, large deep sink, and separate ice maker built into the island.
Overall, you can't go wrong in renting this house for a great experience living on the ocean at the Outer Banks. There are several decks, a few nooks to hide away in and still see the ocean, and a screened in porch.
The owners even provided us with a 'Welcome' bag of toilet paper, paper towels, hand towels, hand soaps, mini shampoos and conditioners and hand lotion, a small dish soap and sponge, 3 tide pods for laundry, and some dish washing detergent. They also provided lots of bath towels, which is not listed on the website.
There are 4 individual thermostat controls throughout the house, and the television provides a subscription to every online service available from Disney+ to Hulu. But who needs a tv with THAT VIEW! It was really stunning and we loved every minute of our stay in Enter Sandman!
This was our second time staying at this home. The upgrades to the outside were great. The additional outdoor toys and floats were appreciated as well. Everything was clean and stocked. We will 100% be returning to Ocean Song 448.
